OLPC's New XO for 90,000 Teens in Uruguay 

,----[ Quote ]
| OLPC has just been awarded an order from 
| Plan Ceibal for 90,000 XO's for teenagers in 
| Uruguay. Yes, there will be a new XO 
| specially for teenagers. Uruguay already has 
| 380,000 of the original XOs for younger 
| children, and now the kids can graduate to 
| one designed for them as they mature.
| It's to be a dual boot laptop. Note not 
| triple boot. No Microsoft in this picture at 
| all. GNOME has leaped into the pool to help 
| out. The press release says, "It will 
| feature the learning-focused Sugar user 
| interface together with the Gnome Desktop 
| Environment to provide a dual-boot Linux 
| operating system with office productivity 
| tools." I wish I were a teenager in Uruguay 
| so I could have one. If they do the partner 
| program, I'm in.
